Competition: Bundesliga 2021/2022
Borussia Dortmund’s exit from the UEFA Europa League remains the most significant issue at the club, which puts the future of Marco Rose in a tense situation.
Before the exit from the European second-tier competition, Dortmund had faced a series of disappointing results that had reduced their chances of winning the Bundesliga title this season.
The loss of Erling Haaland to injury and the misfiring front line currently under reviving with the support of skipper Marco Reus has been seen as the only hope for the club.
Host FC Augsburg is also in a precarious situation as they risk dropping out of the Bundesliga with the fight for survival still at the top agenda of the club at the moment.

Match Preview and Prediction
FC Augsburg requires a win to step out from the Bundesliga drop at this point. The Bavarian based football club has had a series of poor results, which must be improved on to avoid relegation at the end of the season.
Head coach Markus Weinzierl has seen his side drop a considerable number of points in the last ten matches in the league. The German, however, hopes for a different result against an aggrieved Borussia Dortmund side recently dumped out of the Europa League by Scottish giants Rangers FC.
Borussia Dortmund head coach Marco Rose needs to provide an urgent positive response in the wake of his team’s shock exit from the Europa League in the hands of the Rangers. They dismantled the Germans at the Signal Iduna Park on the first leg.
Dortmund did respond in their last Bundesliga outing by thrashing a weakened Borussia Mönchengladbach 6-0. But more urgent steps must be taken to prevent a major disaster for the club.
At the moment, Dortmund is second on the Bundesliga table, about six points behind league leaders who face Eintracht Frankfurt on the road on Saturday evening.
The Bundesliga title race is still open, and it all depends on the outcome between Frankfurt and Bayern Munich, as well as Dortmund’s response to the road trip to FC Augsburg on Sunday.
